What happens if you open Excel, then use File, Open?

Hi, there,

I got exactly the same problem when opening an excel file of 3MB. The file contains quite a lot of formulas and format stuff..

I tried the way you mentioned but still didn't work...
Is there any other possible ways for me to reopen the file? Otherwise, I can't retrieve the data...

Thanks a lot in advance for your advice!!

Open a blank Excel workbook and try running a Detect & Repair.

On the Task Bar,
Detect & Repair

See if that works.
